MELITTIN – Research has proven that one of the peptides in Bee Venom, Melittin, inhibits the Lyme spirochete at very low doses. When the spirochete is inhibited it does not multiply and is then unprotected from the body’s immune system and to the other supporting therapies, remedies, and medications.

Melittin, is a polypeptide also consisting of 26 amino acids present in high quantities (almost 40-60%) of Bee Venom substance. Its healing properties include: inhibiting the formation of free radicals and acting as an effective anti-microbial against the Lyme spirochete while serving as a powerful anti-inflammatory. These properties help destroy infected cells. Its amino acids are the structures that make up proteins.

Scientists have found that the amino acids specific to Melittin have been shown in research to shrink drug-resistant tumors. Some of the primary amino acids composing Melittin consist of Glycine, Valine, Threonine, Proline, Glutamine, Arginine, Alainine, Isoleucine, Leucine, Serine, Trytophan and Lysine. The Melittin molecules in Bee Venom bind and activate specific receptors on neighboring cells to exert their biological effect such as the reduction of pain and inflammation.

Melittin increases endogenous plasma cortisol (EPC) levels in the body. EPC is an important factor in the regulation of lymphocyte numbers and also exert their effect on stressful task performance via modulation of the amygdala. Circadian rhythm of EPC production and the hypothalamic - pituitary - adrenal axis are definitely influenced by HoShin Japanese Meridian Apitherapy.


PEPTIDE 401– (mast cell degranulating peptide or MCD) has been shown to be 100 times more potent and effective as an anti-inflammatory than hydrocortisone. This offers an alternative without side effects to cortisone, prednisone and other NSAID’s as well.

HYALURONIDASE AND PHOSPHOLIPASE – dissolve microbial biofilm, making the cell walls more permeable.

APAMIN AND OCTOPAMIN – antidote the neurotransmitter blockages (L-DOPA depletion) created by the neurotoxins.

ACETHYLCHOLINE – repairs the myelin sheath covering the nerves. Paired with WingTouch Royal Jelly, its the ultimate treatment for cognitive dysfunction, tremors, keeping the red blood cells from clumping and balancing blood viscosity. The brain contains receptors for Acethylcholine.

ROYAL JELLY – helps to restore normal hormonal levels (it is now being used in hormone replacement therapies) especially in depleted androgen levels and low libido. Royal Jelly contains the highest source of acethylcholine found in nature. It is a superb product from the beehive and crucial for repairing cognitive dysfuntion.
